I purchased a new LPCxpresso V2 OM13058 Board with an LPC11U68 controller.
When I plug it into my development machine (Linux Mint 13 = Ubuntu 14.04), LPCXpresso IDE 7.9.2 does not recognize the device and it shows "CMSIS-DAP not found" and "No compatible emulator found".
Anyhow the debug probe is enumerated successfully:

In the process of searching the problem I did already:

- Verified that my user is in group "plugdev" and udev rules have GROUP="plugdev" attached
- Rebooted the machine several times
- Setting the LPC-Link2 in DFU mode does cause LPCXpresso to load the firmware bit is then still unable to find the probe
- The properties of LPCXpresso have "CMSIS-DAP" Firmware selected
- No change if booting the device on the command line "boot_link2"
- Another LPC-Link1 board works just fine!
- In "Launch configuration" -> "Debugger" -> "Emulator selection" is set to "CMSIS-DAP"
- Same tests with RedLink firmware and "no bridge" firmware -> no success
- Finally I try to run an example project from the latest LPCopen2 zip file for my board

What can be wrong? Please help
